Hi,

Is there any way to search the text of a book with Advanced search, not just the description or blurts written about a book. Thanks!

SM

I agree. I hope that archive.org will implement something similar to google books, where you can search raw OCRed text. Even if it isn't totally accurate, it sure would be useful.

Hi,

We do actually have plans to implement full text searching, but I wouldn't expect it to be available before Fall.

Thanks,

Alexis
